500 W should be enough but you should go for at least 750 W because of the following reasons:
  • Best quality PSU is available in the range of 750 W.
  • With 500 W capacity, you will not be able to run it for long as it may get heated up.
  • If you want to use additional hardware, 500W would be insufficient.
  • Price is not much of the difference between 500W and 750W so go for better capacity.
Hence go for the better watts.
